St. George’s School is an independent Academy School and part of the Cardinal Hume Academies Trust. We are an ordered and exciting Catholic learning community achieving the highest standards for boys and girls aged between eleven and nineteen. We believe it is important to provide a firmly disciplined learning environment with quality teaching and high expectations. The quality and dedication of the staff team who work at the school is an essential factor in the excellent standards maintained.
We want our pupils to learn, achieve and excel inspired by Gospel values, so that they can reflect God’s love in their everyday lives. We focus upon building self-esteem and confidence so that success can be achieved spiritually, morally and academically.
We provide learning opportunities and courses for our local communities too and are committed to high attainment for all learners regardless of ability or aptitude. We have first-rate facilities and resources and a relentless focus on effective teaching and learning reflected in our very good public examination results. The school has benefited recently from a building programme.
We aim to provide our young people with the wide range of skills necessary to become high achievers and leaders in an uncertain dynamic global economy. We have strengths across the board facilitating the development of children in a wide range of curriculum areas.
St. George’s has been recognised by the Department for Education as one of the best schools in the country and its traditional approach is valued by both pupils and parents.
